FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery

MEMORIES

“History is the seedbed of the future.”
~ Leo Booth 

I talk about my drinking history because there is no gain without pain. To enjoy sobriety, I must share the reality of my disease. My pain is rooted in my history. I must live with my disease on a daily basis and be aware of the disease process in my life. This awareness requires a rigorously honest inventory of my past attitudes and behaviors. Ignorance is bliss for the disease of addiction!

Awareness and acceptance of my past are my treatment for today. My life has a history, and my spiritual program demands I understand it. While I do not wallow in the past, I recognize its influence on my present and how it informs my future.

Teach me to face my past so lean realistically live in today.
